Ah, work. Along with school, and death (like in the song), this is one human endeavor that's perennially underrated...not
the least vocally by, um, me.
But as old Sigmund "Tweaker" Freud (or someone just like him) always said, "Without work, all life goes rotten." And
darned if he doesn't have a point, as I've found out first-hand on occasion.
Even Marx--a fellow 19th-century paradigm-shaker with a beard you could lose a badger in--insisted that it was our human
LOVE of work, not a desire to shirk it, that would lead inevitably to a more humane economic superstructure. Er...well, we're
still waiting for that last part.
Sweet Cripes, listen to me ramble on. Ahem. Below, you'll find some of the things I've been paid actual currency (and
occasional statuettes) for doing, the last decade plus...
>>Enough talk! Take me straight to Ben's mini-book 'n' reel, pal.
